IDF MKIV Drop Plates****$220****

Drop Plates are in stock and ready to ship!


Designed for bagged/ lowered cars, these plates mount to the rear beam, relocating the hub to provide up to 23mm of drop, center the wheels in the wheel well, and add 2* of camber. All mounting Hardware and Loctite packets provided.

The 2* of camber is designed to offset the thickness of the plate leaving the top of the tire within 5mm of its location before installation. On a 24" overall diameter wheel and tire, the top of the tire moves inward 2.5 mm. Anything larger will move inward farther.

Bolt on in installation requires removal of rear wheel bearing
For installation information, check out Billburt's DIY thread
Bolts Securing the plate to the hub must be torqued to 47 ft. lbs.

The plates work just as well on static cars, it all depends on the wheel size and ride height. The higher the car and bigger the wheel, the more the wheel gets pushed backward.

This car has 17's and pulled fenders. The wheel is slightly forward when aired out, centered at ride height, and backward when raised.



On 18s, the wheel is centered when aired out, and slightly towards the rear at ride height, but I don't have any pictures to show this.

when you say provides up to 23mm of drop how is that? do you order specific heights or is it adjust able?

could you use these for the 23mm of drop then raise coils up some to get more travel?

That is part of the evap system and can be moved out of the way, its held in by a screw right above the part.

Its not adjustable, the amount it drops the car depends on the angle of the beam, 23mm is the max you'll see. And yes your exactly right, the coils can be raised up that amount and allow more travel and in turn a better ride. :thumbup:

We accounted for toe in the design but because every car's ride height isn't the same, we suggest getting an alignment to get it perfect for your car.
